My mother-in-law is in the same place, with macular degeneration, and memory problems. For us it was the doctor that told her she could no longer drive. Tell her the doctor has decided your mother can't drive anymore. Make him the bad guy, he doesn't give a fig I'm sure. Then sell the car, take the temptation out of her reach. She will NOT be happy, but then again the people that she doesn't kill on the road will thank you.
